Adrian Fernandez, #5 Investment Properties of America Panoz/Honda/Firestone:

"I think we are good. We have been trying different things on the car for the changing conditions. The weather today is cooler. The track wasn't very good around mid-day. There were a lot of cars running and we could simulate race conditions a little bit more. In general, I think we are in good shape but it is still an unknown for the race in terms of what you pick for downforce and things like that. I have a feeling that we are strong. How strong I don't know yet. We will be running a little bit tomorrow to try a few things."
